Handling Loads

The 1-day practical training Safe Moving of Loads is intended for employees who have to lift and move loads with the help of an overhead crane. During this training delegates learn the knowledge and skills to do so in a correct, safe and responsible way. This training is both basic and refresher course and will be concluded with a DELTA exam. This is a DELTA certified training. 

As an alternative to SOG BVL and VVL-H DELTA Safety Training also offers the ‘Banksman / Nogepa 1.9A’ training, this is a 3-day training for the ‘Banksman’ certificate. This certificate gives an exemption for the ‘SOG BVL and VVL-H’ certificates within the (petro) chemical industry in NL and can therefore be followed instead of these courses.
